's confirmation as secretary of state, and even slammed kerry as well as chuck hagel for bean anti-military even though both of them serve honorably while cruz spent his formertive years strolling the leafy campuses of princeton and harvard. here he is shapelessly bashing kerry and haig. >> well, we have two pending nominations. john kerry, chuck hagel. both of whom are very prominently less than ardent fans of the u.s. military. >> michael: unbelievable. after those comments even senator john mccain told him to tone it down. and mccain has bipartisan support on this one. democratic senators dianne feinstein and claire mccaskill compared him to joseph mccarthy who accused american citizens of being communist. but toning it down is not in his repertoire. he was at it again. just to give you flavor for the place, this is the poster for larue tactical where the senator chose to call president obama's gun control initiatives wrong. those are mild from what he said in the past. cruz argued that the gun show loophole does not exist. he's a loophole truther. >> there actually isn't the so-called gun sh

. >> department of defense nominee chuck hagel is hoping to quell criticism about his views toward israel and iran. he reportedly described the state department as an adjunct to the israeli government. that statement along with his position on nuclear arms, has fuelled republican concerns over his nomination. in a letter to critics, chuck hagel says he did not remember and is about the 2007 report. gop senators stalled his nomination last week. >> the supreme court could make key decisions today and one involves affirmative-action. justices could rule on whether to severely limit the use of race and admissions programs at public universities and colleges. , also, the court will decide whether lawyers journalists and human-rights groups can legally challenge the constitutionality of a secret government program. it expands the authority of federal officials to conduct secret electronic surveillance of non-u.s. citizens located outside the u.s. and the justices will consider whether the sniff of a police dog and somebody sports constitutes a search and whether that requires a warrant. >> 3 maryland

for the top of the news and chuck hagel should get a vote. that is what two key republicans are now saying about president obama's nominee for defense secretary. last week g.o.p. senators delayed a veto on hagel saying they need more time to go over his record. the former senator faced tough questions at confirmation hearing about israel and other issues including iran. senate is off this week. now republican senators and lindsay graham say they will not block a vote. next week, even if they end up voting against him. mike is live from washington. what are republicans saying about the delay. >> they say chuck hagel is a controversial nominee and time allows them important time to take a closer look at them. they obtained a letter that send to graham and another senator drafting a speech accusing the state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office. ha gefl says he disavow the statement attributed to me. here is one of the recipients of that letter. >> so i'm glad that we have got more time to look. i am glad he answered my question about the comment he allegedly mad

ground. chuck hagel has faced a really ugly confirmation battle. republicans have used an unprecedented filibuster to at least slow down that confirmation. you said on filibusters that filibusters abused terribly today, especially on nominations. filibusters against nominees create a chilling effect that keeps top talent from even accepting nominations." is it time for a more comprehensive filibuster reform? >> unfortunately, i've come to that conclusion. the filibuster was used in the past but used very rarely. but it's now used as an everyday matter of course. we had 130 some motions in congress. you can't run a country that way. you can't run a government. especially with regard to the white house when you have a limited amount of time for each of these members to serve in a cabinet or high-level positionfr a year or sometimes even two years is unacceptable. we're going to have to revisit the filibuster in nominations and hopefully they'll do it before this congress. >> i agree with you, the 60-vote senate, especially as it relates to executive branch nominations is really troubling.

tomorrow night on the record. now to a controversy over defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. now fuel for the fire and senators raising remarks for renarcs in 2007. cording to the record, hagel says that an adjuncts to the israeli office. and making the comment at rutgers, and today another bombshell accusation. the person who brought senator hagel to russia was once a pro hamas candidacy for the presidency. and new for joining us. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: so where do you stand on vote for senator hagel tonight? . well, i asked him a question about the report you just referenced. there was a blog post after his speech at rutgers by a supporter who listed six points of the speech and number six was that the state department, the u.s. state department was adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which is a breath taking statement. senator hagel says he doesn't recall making that statement and would disavow it. this latest report, i'm trying to sort it. but the bottom line for me, if he in fact said something like that, that the state department was controlled by the israe

. allegations surfacing today that former senator chuck hagel the department is controlled by the israeli foreign military. and if the second statement were true said the secretary of state's office is it controlled by the israeli foreign military, and the israelis-u.s. relationship way out of the mainstream. if he were to accuse the department of state of being basically subserviant to the nation of israel that would be, that would be enough to scuttle this nomination. >> new questions about transparency within the obama administration as the white house press corps expressing frustration after being barred from the president's weekend golf trip to florida. >> the drive-by fit to be tied. and ed henry the head of the white house correspondent's association has logged an official complaint with the white house claiming lack of transparency. >> let me say it as simply as i can, transparency and the rule of low will be the touchstones of this presidency. >> do you think it's that big a deal. do you think that a picture with obama and tiger woods, it would hurt him? i don't either. who are w

cleared, and, secondly, what you said about the chuck hagel hearing. you see this, again, with senators that are trying -- that are retiring, that we never expected to retire, and that is the wear of the game of this town is taking its toll on the very people you want in government at a time in which we have to address the big problems that we have in this country, and you wonder if that game sort of continues, this sort of chicken and egg, chicken -- cat and mouse kind of thing. are we really going to take the best and the brightest and steer them away from, again, solving the biggest problems that we have in this country? >> let's stipulate late that on "meet the press" you were one of those, a democrat, and a former white house official who said that hagel's performance wasn't good to put it mildly, that he did not seem prepared, he did not know how to respond to john mccain and other critics. at the same time a lot of people are suggesting that ted cruise's attack on him and this continual, you know, lindsey graham now saying let's take a look at the rutgers speech and now they're d

of chuck hagel, he's definitely making his opinion known. >> bill: well, there are -- by the way, a contrast with elizabeth warren, for example who has really followed the model of hillary clinton al franken, keep your head down, you know, don't make a lot of noise. don't be a showboat. be a workhorse. >> they know they have the star power, an audience looking at them. they really want to keep their head down even more and work hard. >> bill: right. with ted cruz, there are two republican senators at least that i can remember, both john mccain and lindsey graham came out publicly and said that they thought ted cruz had gone over the line with some of his questioning of chuck hagel. when your own fellow republicans call you to task, does that mean anybody to a guy like ted cruz? what does he say when reporters ask him about the criticism? >> i came to washington from texas to shake things up, not necessarily follow the rules set in place in the nation's capital. he is really going to represent his conservative constituent's interest and if that means going against members of his o

demand answers. >> could the dear man read the deer sign? >> yeah. >> stephanie: what does chuck hagel have to do with benghazi, nothing? >> absolutely nothing. the whole thing with chuck hagel has to do with lindsay graham getting renominated to run for senate in south carolina. >> stephanie: that's what i was going to say is that the only reason john mccain is doing this is to help lindsay graham? >> i think that's the only reason yes. the american people need to know!
